all signs point to miller working out

he is exactly the type of player the canucks needed

(stone would have been perfect - but that ship has sailed)

So far it does look good! But it's also the beginning of preseason. I'm a pro-Benning guy but we haven't even gotten to game 1 of 82 yet. 

 

All I'm preaching is patience until we see how things pan out. Even if things look promising thus far.

lol, same things could have been said about Sutter, Gudbranson, Eriksson. 1st game hasn't even started, stop jumping the gun.

i will not enumerate all the things accomplished by the nucks gm since last season ended

many considered the brock signing to be the final piece before a complete assessment could be made

 

i think that contract is as consistently good as all the other things jb did this past summer

drafting, trading, ufa signings, other contract matters

(i'm sure many will nitpick -- i was never expecting perfection)

 

a top tier off season performance by gm jb in my books

good job!!

Yes, would have been nice to move Eriksson, just from a cap space standpoint, but he has overhauled this team and we should be highly competitive this year.

assessments can be made a various times in a process

all major tasks this off season are now completed

we can reach some conclusions now based on expectations going into the off season

i'd agree we'll certainly know better in time

but jb accomplished what he set out to do this summer

am a bit surprised he basically did everything he said he'd do

and the team is in good shape going forward

Nah, this is CDC.

 

But yeah, I think management did a pretty good job this offseason. 

Trust me, I follow various forums for my other favourite sports teams, and CDC is overwhelmingly more positive than everyone else. Even HF Canucks boards are tame compared to most other sports boards.

 

That being said, I think the same standard should be held for every offseason. Wait until we judge. If this was a seemingly bad offseason for JB most on here would be telling people off saying we gotta wait till we judge. The same should be applied in this case, where the acquisitions by JB seem positive. Let's see how things play out.

I agree. Now it is in Travis Green's hands to make this into something. If the team struggles to start the year he better fix it quick!
